Dems AWOL as Last Week Marked 153 Years Since the GOP Outlawed Slavery Forever

It’s a fairly short piece of law, too: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction,” the amendment reads.

It also gives Congress the power to enforce the law.

Now, the traditional anniversary of the end of slavery, at least in the African-American community, is Juneteenth — June 19, the date in 1865 when Maj. Gen. Gordon Granger of the Union Army read the Emancipation Proclamation to slaves in Galveston, Texas. However, when the 13th Amendment celebrated its 153rd birthday on Dec. 6, it didn’t get a whole lot of mention. And what definitely didn’t get mentioned is that it wouldn’t exist if Democrats had their way.

As Ourdocuments.gov notes, “The 13th Amendment was passed at the end of the Civil War before the Southern states had been restored to the Union and should have easily passed the Congress.

“Although the Senate passed it in April 1864, the House did not. At that point, Lincoln took an active role to ensure passage through Congress. He insisted that passage of the 13th Amendment be added to the Republican Party platform for the upcoming presidential elections. His efforts met with success when the House passed the bill in January 1865 with a vote of 119–56.”

Indeed, it had to be ratified before the Southern states rejoined the union. The reason is that the Democrats considered Dixie their own personal fiefdom up until the late 1960s. Jim Crow laws, segregated schools, the KKK, massive resistance, eugenics — all of these things were brought to you by the Democratic Party and vigorously fought by the Republicans.

But, you say, what about the “great switch?” That’s when the Democrats supposedly became the party of racial justice, all put into motion to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Well, yes, about that. The bill couldn’t have passed without Republican support.

Even the U.K. Guardian, of all sources, notes that “80 percent of Republicans in the House and Senate voted for the bill. Less than 70 percent of Democrats did. Indeed, Minority Leader Republican Everett Dirksen led the fight to end the filibuster. Meanwhile, Democrats such as Richard Russell of Georgia and Strom Thurmond of South Carolina tried as hard as they could to sustain a filibuster.”

The vote was taken during the “Solid South” era, where almost every elected official below the Mason-Dixon was a Democrat. Only eight out of 102 representatives from the former Confederacy voted for the bill in the House and one of 22 voted for it in the Senate.

Yet, the fact that the South is now pretty solidly Republican always brings a asking from Democrats, who constantly mistake the new South — the product of economic growth and migration — with the old South they provided over for so many years.

They lament the racism they so successfully fomented for years, as if their party played no role in it. They’ve washed their hands clean. As “penance,” they’ve taken on a different form of identity politics which doesn’t involve standing in the schoolhouse door but is every bit as pernicious.

That’s why the 13th Amendment ought to be celebrated a bit more, we think. Not only did it officially end slavery and passed without Democratic support, it had to be passed before the Southern Democrats could rejoin the Union, lest they continue one of the most evil practices in the history of this planet.

The Democrats have always been the party of oppression and identity politics, whether it be Dec. 6, 1865 or Dec. 6, 2018. If only America would remember that. The Democrats would certainly prefer you didn’t.

Election Judge Sees Fraud 7 Ft Away. Reports It. Dems Demand She Be Removed: Report


Reported By Kara Pendleton | November 12, 2018 at 3:38am

While “all eyes” are on Florida amidst accusations of potential election fraud, there may have been something fishy going on in St. Clair County, Illinois. According to The Gateway Pundit, this would not be the first time something like this has happened, either.

Peggy A. Hubbard posted a multi-tweet thread explaining what happened in the 2018 midterm elections, noting that she was an election judge. She began describing some of what she witnessed as she watched the polling station.

But that wasn’t all she saw.

Not only is it shocking that anyone would allow this, but it’s also shocking that someone would get in such a state before then going to vote.

Hubbard noted that she also caught a city council member just feet away doing no good. But it was Hubbard taking flack.

She also elaborated further on how she put a stop to what she witnessed. It appears that these actions may have led to the complaints filed against her and her removal as an election judge being sought.

Hubbard has also posted about other problems with the election in her state. These are from 2016.

Hubbard is no stranger to standing up for what she believes in or in being attacked for it. In 2015, she “compared the black community’s reaction to the shooting of Mansur Ball-Bey in North St. Louis outside a crack house with the shooting death of 9 year-old Jamyla Bolden in Ferguson,” according to The Gateway Pundit.

Her video rant went viral. And the typical name-calling ensued, including her being referred to as an “Uncle Tom.”

Service isn’t new to Hubbard, either. She is a veteran who served aboard the USS SAMUEL GOMPERS AD-37.

Hubbard’s Twitter feed is filled with hard-hitting posts about the left and Democrat shenanigans. She has no problem speaking out against the Democrat Plantation” and “Black Lives Matter,” contrary to what blacks in America are expected to do.

GA Sec. of State Office Accuses Dem Party of Trying To Hack Voter System 2 Days Before Election


Reported By Bryan Chai | November 5, 2018 at 11:17am

One of the tightest races for governor in this week’s midterm elections just took another twist, as accusations of hacking voter systems have surfaced in Georgia. But this time, it’s not the Russians or a WikiLeaks operative being accused of hacking the voter system. Much to the chagrin of Democrats, this time it’s the party most likely to whine about voter hacking that has been accused of that very same thing.

According to WSB-TV, the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office is investigating a failed attempt to hack the state’s voter registration system. And just to clear any confusion or hoax narratives, the office is pointing its finger directly at Democrats.

“While we cannot comment on the specifics of an ongoing investigation, I can confirm that the Democratic Party of Georgia is under investigation for possible cyber crimes,” said Candice Broce, press secretary for the secretary of state’s office, in a statement on Sunday.

However, as with most things Democrats have attempted to do in recent years, the clandestine hacking seems to have failed spectacularly.

“We can also confirm that no personal data was breached and our system remains secure,” Broce added.

Complicating the story even more is that Georgia’s current secretary of state, the man in charge of investigating the Democratic Party, is Brian Kemp, the Republican candidate for governor. Kemp’s office issued a statement explaining the investigation, according to WSB-TV.

“We opened an investigation into the Democratic Party of Georgia after receiving information from our legal team about failed efforts to breach the online voter registration system and My Voter Page. We are working with our private sector vendors and investigators to review data logs. We have contacted our federal partners and formally requested the Federal Bureau of Investigation to investigate these possible cyber crimes. The Secretary of State’s office will release more information as it becomes available.”

To the surprise of nobody, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (yes, the same one supported by Oprah Winfrey) has denied any involvement in the alleged hacking.

Just as unsurprising, Abrams tried to deflect blame for her party’s alleged misconduct and instead attacked Republicans.

“(Republican governor candidate Brian Kemp) is trying to rile up his base by misleading voters yet again,” Abrams said. “This is also someone who has a strong habit of having hackable systems. And the problem is, Democrats did nothing wrong. What is happening is that he, once again, is overseeing a vulnerable system and is blaming someone for his mistakes.”

Kemp, who has even been accused of being a “racist” for wanting voters to have identification, fired back through his communications director with a blistering statement of his own.

“The Democratic Party of Georgia will stop at nothing to regain relevance and power in our state,” said the statement said. “They lied about Georgia’s ‘pending’ voter list, made up stories about missing absentee ballot requests, and spread misinformation about our state’s voting machines. Every time, their ridiculous claims were undermined by the truth.”

You know what would undermine the Democrats even more? Republicans getting out and voting on Tuesday. That would work in Georgia, and it needs to work everywhere else in America, too.

West Virginia’s Democratic governor will flip to Republican Party

West Virginia’s Democratic governor will flip to Republican Party

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Democrat, will announce he is flipping to the GOP at a rally with President Trump on Thursday.

A senior Republican operative confirmed Justice’s plans to switch parties to The Hill.
Justice, a coal magnate and the wealthiest man in West Virginia, first won office last year. Before announcing his candidacy, he was wooed by both Democrats and Republicans. Ultimately, he opted to run as a Democrat.
Justice’s party switch is a slap in the face to the Democratic Governors Association, which spent more than $1 million to try to get Justice elected in 2016. The Republican Governors Association spent $3.7 million backing his GOP rival.

Trump took 68 percent of the vote in West Virginia in 2016, beating Hillary  by 41 points. Justice, who faced the Republican state Senate president in November, won office with 49 percent of the vote.

Justice, the only billionaire in West Virginia, is the chief executive officer of dozens of companies, many in the coal industry. He also owns the Greenbrier, a luxury resort in the Allegheny Mountains that once served as a bunker meant to help the U.S. government survive a nuclear attack.

The New York Times first reported Justice’s decision to flip parties.
Trump seemed to tease the announcement earlier Thursday during an event spotlighting telehealth efforts by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

“We’re going to have a very big announcement, which will be very exciting I think for the media and everyone else,” Trump said. “I believe I’ll be making it in West Virginia, so that will be very exciting.”

Trump will fly to Huntington, W.Va., late Thursday for a rally at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena. It is his second visit to West Virginia in a little more than a week, following a speech to a Boy Scouts Jamboree.

That event took place at the James C. Justice National Scout Camp, a facility named for the governor.

Democrats May Be On The Verge Of Becoming A ‘Permanent Minority’ Party


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Stewart LawrenceStewart Lawrence | Contributor | 2:20 PM 02/06/2017

Remember when Democrats predicted the imminent decline of the GOP? The theory was that Republicans were so out of touch with women and ethnic minorities that they would soon be relegated to the status of a “permanent minority” — supported only by Southern white men and incapable of recapturing the White House.

Donald Trump’s victory has put an end to this fantasy. Now it’s the Democrats who are facing their own “doomsday” scenario.

A recent analysis conducted by Third Way — a self-described “centrist” think tank — argues that Democrats are evolving into a “coastal” party. They have strong bases in California, New York and Massachusetts but are slowly ceding the rest of the country to Republicans.

Third Way compared 2016 election results in the two areas and found an astounding asymmetry:

In California, New York and Massachusetts, home to roughly 24 million voters, voters chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump by a large margin, 65% to 35%.

But in the remaining 47 states, home to 105 million voters, voters broke for Trump by a decisive 52% to 48% margin.

The geographic concentration of the pro-Hillary vote is one reason Clinton’s supposed popular vote “victory” rings so hollow. Clinton ran up the score in a liberal state like California, where she bested Trump by some 4.3 million votes. But that single-state advantage is simply not reflective of the broader national pattern, which favored Trump, Third Way found.

Recent voting patterns in Congress point to another disastrous trend for Democrats: They are fast becoming a “two-region” party. Democrats have a 3-1 lead over the GOP in California, New York and Massachusetts and a 3-1 lead over Republicans in the Pacific Northwest and the Mid-Atlantic (also known as the “Acela Corridor”). However, those regions account for less than 20% of the total numbers of House members.

By contrast, if you focus on the American South, the Heartland, and the Southwest — about 80% of the country — the GOP leads Democrats by more than 2-1. Overall, that translates into a decisive GOP advantage in the House of Representatives — one that is not likely to shift anytime soon.

There are other powerful signs that the Democrats are losing their grip on power.

The vast majority of state legislatures — 32, a record — are in GOP hands, as are a majority of the state houses. And Democrats face enormous challenges in the U.S. Senate in 2018 because they must defend at least 10 seats in states that Trump won in 2016 — while the GOP occupies virtually none that are considered vulnerable to reversal.

One bellwether contest will be the battle of liberal Sen. Elizabeth Warren for re-election in Massachusetts. A recent statewide poll found that 46% of voters would support someone else for her seat — her weakest showing yet.Happy Happy Joy Joy

Other vulnerable Senate Democrats include party stalwarts like North Dakota’s Heidi Heitkamp, Missouri’s Claire MCCaskill, Montana’s Jon Tester, and even Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine, in Virginia. One top Democratic strategist recently told Politico Magazine“It’s going to be a disaster.”

Another major quandary for Democrats is their national leadership. Without Obama at the helm, the party has fallen prey to fierce ideological, gender and ethnic divisions. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) managed to impose herself as party leader yet again, beating back a powerful challenge from Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who blamed Pelosi and her ardent followers, many of them dependent on her fundraising support, for leading Democrats astray.

Since then, the party has found itself increasingly divided over the nomination of Muslim Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) to become Democratic National Committee chair. Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and more recently, former vice-president Joe Biden have joined the fray, but each supports a different candidate, further complicating the dispute. It’s becoming a race to the bottom. Ellison and his emerging rival Tom Perez, Obama’s former labor secretary, are virtual unknowns outside the party. Sanders and Biden, who might have fared better against Trump than Clinton, are too old to lead the Democrats moving forward. Warren herself will be 71 in 2024.

The party could well find itself without a viable White House challenger to Trump in 2020.Happy Happy Joy Joy

And then there’s the Supreme Court. Trump has just announced his candidate to replace Judge Antonin Scalia, Neil Gorsuch. A staunch conservative who once clerked for Anthony Kennedy, the leading “swing” vote on the Court, he’s hard to pigeon-hole politically. And despite threats to block Gorsuch, the Democrats have become victims of their own hubris. Under Obama, they altered the rules so that only 51 Senate votes were needed to confirm a judicial appointee. The Republicans now have 52, making Gorsuch a shoo-in.

For the GOP, regaining a 5-4 majority in the Supreme Court would amount to a political crown jewel: The party will dominate every branch and level of government for the first time in modern history. For Democrats, who’ve grown accustomed to having their way in national politics, it’s like staring into the abyss.Happy Happy Joy Joy

Democrats Unify Around Shutting Down White People


waving flagAuthored by Photo of Scott Greer Scott Greer | Deputy Editor | 11:21 AM 01/25/2017

URL of the original posting site: http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/25/democrats-unify-around-shutting-down-white-people/#ixzz4Wp7XN7ch

A Democratic National Committee candidate forum showed a party united in one theme: white people need to shut up. A white female chair hopeful ventured forth to state her very job was to keep to her fellow Caucasians in their proper place at the Monday night event.

“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to say, ‘oh, no, I’m not prejudiced; I’m a Democrat; I’m accepting,’” Sally Boynton Brown, Idaho Democratic Committee chairwoman and DNC chair candidate, declared. (RELATED: White Candidate For DNC Chair Says Her Job Will Be ‘To Shut Other White People Down’)

She further said that she would shut white people down when they try to interrupt minorities, make sure that they “get” their white privilege and encourage minorities to school Caucasians on all the important topics.Socialism alert

These anti-white comments appear remarkable to come from someone who hopes to lead a major political party — who also happens to be white herself. There’s still a lot of white people in America, and you need a substantial number of them to win elections. So adopting as your party message, “shut up and check your white privilege!” seems pretty counter-productive.

Then again, it’s par for the course for the modern Democratic Party. Other candidates for the chair position nodded along with Brown’s statements at the forum, showing their clear approval for what she was saying. The leading candidate for to be the next leader of the DNC is Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, who once proposed for a black ethno-state to be carved out of America. The reason for this black nationalist dream was to get away from all those bad white people. (RELATED: Keith Ellison Once Proposed Making A Separate Country For Blacks) Ellison also once said the Constitution is evidence of “a white racist conspiracy to subjugate other peoples.”What did you say 07.jpg

Shockingly, these comments have hardly hurt the Minnesota congressman among his fellow Democrats. When confronted by The Daily Caller on his comments, several Democratic lawmakers found nothing “objectionable” in Ellison’s black nationalist past. (RELATED: Black Congressmen Refuse To Condemn Ellison’s Past Proposal For A ‘Black State’)

The 2016 Democratic primary — which pitted two elderly whites against each other — at times resembled a competition as to who could bash Caucasians and check their privilege the most. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders admitted that they had white privilege and said that their fellow whites should own up to that trait.

Clinton and Sanders placed the blame for the woes of minority communities on systemic racism — the idea that America’s institutions are set up to favor whites and disenfranchise non-whites. They also lashed out at Donald Trump’s “white supremacy” and preyed upon the fears of minority voters that the man who won the election would take away their rights if he gained power. While she was the party’s nominee, Clinton made similar (though not as egregious) comments to Brown’s groveling.

“I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African-American families, who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have the talk about … how to really protect themselves, when they are the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with the police,” Clinton stated during a July 2016 CNN interview. “I’m going to be talking to white people. I think we are the ones who have to start listening to the legitimate cries that are coming from our African-American fellow citizens, and we have so much more to be done, and we have got to get about the business of doing it.” what-did-you-say-02

The then-presidential candidate made those comments in response to a black nationalist murdering five police officers in Dallas, Texas. Even when whites are the victims of racially-motivated crimes, they are somehow still responsible for them, according to the wisdom of the new Democratic elite.More Evidence

This condescending form of identity politics is obviously not going to help Democrats win back Rust Belt voters who pulled the lever for Trump. Moreover, it could potentially cause deep divisions within their own base. For instance, during the Women’s March last weekend, one viral image showed a major potential conflict that could burst out into the open.

Don’t forget: white women voted for Trump read the sign of a not-too pleased black woman while smiling white females took selfies of themselves in pussy hats in the background. It’s clear those white women didn’t vote for Trump, but they have to be lectured about it anyway due to their race, according to the woman who held the sign.

“I don’t think it’s a matter of white women becoming interested in our issues; I need them to recognize they are implicit or complicit benefactors of systems like white supremacy and patriarchy—and that’s a problem,” Angela Peoples, the sign holder, told The Root.What did you say 05.jpg

Nobody likes to be belittled for something they didn’t do and have no control over. How the mostly white women marchers will feel about being told to go to the back of the Democratic bus is yet to be determined, but it’s likely some will not be too happy with that idea.

If one thing is clear from recent events, it’s that the Democratic Party’s one unifying message is telling white people to shut up — the opinions of non-whites matter more than yours.

Schumer: Dems Will Work With Trump Only ‘If He Moves Completely In Our Direction’ [VIDEO]

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Democrats would work with President-elect Donald Trump only if he “moves completely in our direction and abandons his Republican colleagues.”

“The only way we’re going to work with him is if he moves completely in our direction and abandons his Republican colleagues,” Schumer told CNN Tuesday. “90-95 percent of the time we’ll be holding his feet to the fire and holding him accountable.”

Schumer added, “But we’re Democrats. We’re not just going to oppose things to oppose them.”more-words

His statement stands in contrast to his Senate floor speech when he said Democrats would work with Trump “if the president-elect proposes legislation on issues like infrastructure and trade and closing the carried interest loophole, for instance, we’ll work in good faith to perfect and potentially enact it.”
